It is biggest and deepest. So, not surprised of the diversity of life within and around its waters. Some topics have been covered by other nature program such as the California coastal giant kelp forests, "ultra tiny" diet of the humongous blue whales or manta rays, ecology of reefs, grunion runs etc. in cinematic 4K. The Behind the Scene episode documents how the filming of the scenes were possible. The crew got to experience the places with help of locals, as chasing the "Dragon Tide" in Hangzhou Bay.

Notes from wiki::
1. Pacific nearly twice the area of Atlantic and larger than Indian and Atlantic combined:
Pacific (168,723,000 sq km)
Atlantic (85,133,000 sq km)
Indian (70,560,000 sq km)
Southern (21,960,000 sq km)
Arctic (15,558,000 sq km)
2. The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean (or, depending on definition, to Antarctica) in the south and is bounded by Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east.
